There is certainly a lot of differences in working at home and in the office.
Landing a 9-5 job after college is the most logical thing to aim for. Most graduates are aching to prove themselves in the real world. But truth of the matter is, not everyone is able to practice and apply what their courses were in college. There is one key difference unemployed and under-employed. Unemployed is not having a job at all. Underemployed is having a job but not exactly in connection with your college degree. These are real world scenarios because office jobs are coming in too far in between. And landing a job that is directly related to your degree makes it even more difficult.
Working from home, on the other hand, gives you the flexibility to choose the job you want to pursue. There are a lot of options to choose from. You can harness and improve your writing skills, dabble on your talent of putting together visual presentations. You can even make use of your ability in keeping everything in order and on track. The online possibilities are endless. The upside of this working scenario is that you get to work at your own time and pace. The more hours you put in, the more you get paid. You can also bring work with you wherever you go. Working from home also gives you the ability to be mobile. All you need is your laptop and an excellent internet connection and you’re all set! With the introduction of LTE technology, internet connections are at blazing speeds.
These are some of the key differences of getting a day job as against pursuing a career from home. Working from home offers more advantages so you can live a fuller life with more time for the things that matters most to you.
But at the end of the day, the choice solely depends on your personal preference. There are people built for working at home while others who thrive better working with others in an office environment.
